Bottle into snifter. Poured black with a dark tan head. Smelled of prunes, caramel, chocolate and bourbon. Tasted of espresso, dark chocolate, alcohol, caramel and some nut undertone peaking through. Strong aftertaste of dark cacao, Bourbon and alcohol. Intense and great beer.

Another great stout from Stone. Strong roasted and floral hop aroma. Pours very dark with a thin ring for a head. Thick and viscous with a smooth dryness. Strong roasted chocolate flavors up front with a lasting bitterness. The IBU’s must be high. Well balance and the alcohol is hidden.

Tap at brewdog shepherds bush. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Rich sticky fruit cake aroma with caramel. Full body, light carbonation. Lots of sweet candy licorice, booze, light choc, light coffee, treacle. Sweet and pretty dominant booze. OK. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Keg at Brewdog Shepherds Bush (served very cold but allowed to warm to decent temp - better than the tepid cask version at GBBF though). Jet black with a head the colour of white coffee. Big banana aroma mixed in with the bourbon and chocolate. Loads more banana and coconut in the mouth to complement the booze and the coffee and chocolate roast. It’s quite good but not a world-beater.

Cask at GBBF
Black with a small beige head, some lacing. Aroma of bourbon, roasted malts and chocolate. Taste is woody, bourbon and chocolate.
Nice

Osprey87 (1625) - WALES - AUG 17, 2014
Keg at Brewdog as ’w00tstout 2.0’. Black, small foamy tan head. Aroma is chocolate, molasses, sherry, floral. Body is medium, quite foamy, mid-carbonation. Taste is chocolate syrup, tangy fruit with a yeasty marmite edge, alcohol is noticeable and brings a brandy sharpness. Came across as a bit unbalanced, but a decent imperial stout.

evergreen0199 (2008) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2014
Cask at Great British Beer Festival 2014, Olympia, London. A black coloured pour with a thin beige head on top. Sweet, boozy, chocolate aroma. Tastes similar, sweet, slightly roasty, boozy, chocolate, some vanilla. Clearly a well made Imperial Stout but it was a bit heavy going.

gendv138 (1232) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - AUG 16, 2014
22 oz bottle (2.0) poured into a Spiegelau tulip. Black with a almost a finger of tan head. Aromas of bourbon, vanilla, dark fruit, dark chocolate, light booze. Tastes of bourbon, caramel, dark chocolate, spices, rye. Medium-full body with a dry and slightly warm finish. Low carbonation, semi-oily mouthfeel. Dig this more than the original batch/1.0.

hopscotch (9120) - Indian River County, Florida, USA - AUG 13, 2014
Bottle... Pours dark brown (nearly black) with a small, creamy, beige head. Good retention. The bouquet is a blend of carbonic, bitter, black malts, spicy grains and dark chocolate. Full-bodied with a buttery mouthfeel and tingly carbonation. There’s a shit-ton of burnt, bitter charcoal both in the flavor and lengthy carbonic finish. Bottle courtesy of ctipping!
